‘The Mentalist’ Season 7 Announced by CBS

The Mentalist Season 6 Premiere The Desert Rose (1)

Even if we were all biting our nails, Patrick Jane probably saw this coming: CBS has officially ordered a seventh season of TV Equals‘ favorite The Mentalist. Just last month, reports circulated that Warner Bros. TV was looking for a new home for the drama, but EW confirms The Mentalist will live on for another season. As a result, series showrunner Bruno Heller will be pulling double duty as he works on The Mentalist and his new Fox series, Gotham.

The Mentalist joins 18 other series at CBS to receive a pick-up, while five freshman series were not so lucky. Did you just breathe a big sigh of relief that your favorite made the cut?
